According to dispatched from the state capital Maine went emphatically Republican for two big reasons. Viz disgust for the present administration and the opposition to the Laitgue of nations which was pleaded for so valiantly by Franklin d. Roosevelt. Maine s voters in their edict of monday showed beyond a doubt that the new England Section is not in ii Antony with the Wilson forces. The conversion not Only of the Large number of democratic voters but of the women voters As Well to the a o. P. Standard shows that there 1b friction Felt Between the Border state of the Northeast und wilsonian Washington. Maine has always opposed Wilson it now comes Forth in the state election to show its intense feeling against the administration. The league of nations can also be attributed to the causes for the democratic failure. Franklin with ibs Well framed speech scoring the Republican candidates for bringing up forever the six votes of England went into Maine and told the people How president Wilson had hoodwinked England had gotten twelve votes to her six. The thick headed Yankees had to be shown and the democratic second chair Choice took pains to explain. The votes of Cuba Brazil and other South american countries would certainly Side with the United states i varied climes varied habits. Natives of hot climates who spend much time in the water rarely use and in this Way the six votes of eng Boap except for a shave or shampoo land would be Over balanced by an the Esqui Mau is a reckless bather during the fishing season when he la forced to Wade to disentangle his nets other six. The proof was not Deur enough for Maine and to show her feeling she sent Forth the voters v j �., think monday to drown the democratic but his wife and family turn l ing nominees.
